|Abstract: ||摘 要
By exploring Soh Kuramoto’s series work, “KITA NO KUNI KARA,”which reminded me of the word “civilization” and of the implication to us all, I come across the critical point of rethinking that how we as human race have come to today. This thesis is primarily intended to focus on the term “modernity.” However, the scope of understanding the origin and characteristics of modernity through historic literature is excessively broad. Thus, this research examines “modernity” by the influences under the scope of “city and countryside,” “expense principle,” “family and interpersonal relationship,” “viability,” and “ecological environment.”
The presented paper will discuss separately and make exhaustive analysis to the viewpoints of “city and countryside,” “expense principle,” “family and interpersonal relationship,” “viability,” and “ecological environment.” After rationale establishment, the research elaborates “the author’s theory” as the center point. Soh Kuramoto was deeply imprinted by the attitudes of his father and grandfather toward their lives. The social contrast before and after the Second World War initiated him to rethink his society. Theater performances while in college and working for the broadcasting station, television, and screenplay after graduation contributed to his successful establishment of creative foundation. Soh Kuramoto finally chose to settle in FURANO for its northern natural and cultural environment. KITA NO KUNI KARA series extended such influence by the environment and humanity.
In “the city and countryside” discovered that “KITA NO KUNI KARA” in the play the character regards the metropolis for the practice ideal goal, when as actual lives as the city, actually can only in the low social class strive for the survival, tasted the bitter fruit which, because the city and countryside disparity, the resource distribution uneven brought. From the movie text analysis saw that in “KITA NO KUNI KARA”, the Soh Kuramoto by the massive FURANO sceneries, the zoology and botany phantom, the character talks…Strengthens, highlights such feeling.
From “the expense principle”, “the ecological environment”, “viability” in three analyzes, observes in “KITA NO KUNI KARA” three relations are close, to solve the modern society mass production commodity, expends the principle the life and the thought that is affecting the humanity deeply. But to satisfy the production and the expense vicious circle, the ecological environment also overflowed along with it date the worsening, to consume seriously, has had the ecological crisis which the global environment worsened. But another long-time influence is, has been used to the people who expends anything, no longer has, is not willing to utilize its instinct to come the live. Is following the modernity social footsteps, but the globalized network society, is affecting the family and the interpersonal relationship, displays hypothesized and leaves sparsely.
The findings discovered that the Soh Kuramoto’s series work, “KITA NO KUNI KARA” in the work, many reconsidering spots which proposed to the modern civilization crisis. Because of the return natural life style and the manner, the resistance expends the vicious circle and the city life difficult position, the pathos which and produces; Respects, the loving care environment to replace to the environment exploitation; Mutual cooperation's neighborhood social relations replace the modernity society which the benefit contends with; Displays the potential solution life question to replace the money is the multi-purpose life manner.
